I’m unable to update my ubuntu installed packages.
There seems to be a conflict with sysvint-utils preventing the process.
I’ve tried many of the articles found to try and fix this but having no luck at all.
I don’t want to build a new server then migrate if I don’t have to.
Any ideas or suggestions are welcomed?
